I suspect that the main point (apart from the jokes) was to show that robots dream — that their "sleep" is closely analogous to human sleep. (Had that really been established before?) Otherwise, "sedating" her might have meant she just rebooted into the same state as before, which would have made it a bit pointless.

[up][up][up] There definitely would be some cleaning going on. Hell, even regular computers do that - for instance rebooting clears out RAM, which often gets clogged by programs claiming sections and then forgetting to free them, even after they are themselves shut down. At that level, Roko would've gotten rebooted to some sort of a baseline emotional state, cutting down the short-lived but extreme freakout she had from the Jenga. If her consciousness is more analogous to human, she could've lost some short-term memory as well, ending up with evening going like "came home, chatted with the wacky duo, uh, dozed off?".

Yeesh...Wonder Bread?

If you're going to have a bread fetish, at least go for artisan bread.

I remember this being a thing years ago, but never made the connection that Roko's own bread fetish was parodying that.

Seriously? I thought that he would have given up and moved onto other weird fetishes by now, or that artists would have wised up and stopped accepting requests. Then again, if the money's good...

I would imagine that it's something specifically about blonde women buying an excessive amount of wonder bread that gets this guy off, and bald men buying cartfuls of power drills wouldn't do it for him, however similar it may seem.

I wonder if this is a freudian thing. Maybe one of their oldest most powerful childhood memories was of a lady, maybe their mom, just innocently shopping for bread and they have been trying to recapture that moment ever since?

Yeah he was around until late 2018, when he apparently went out to a troll forum (not a smart move) to defend himself and somehow ended up completely doxxed. Eesh.

Um. What?

Is Roko serious here? The possibility was brought up some time ago by Bubbles, back when she was still at the fight club. But it'd be strange for Jeph to introduce such a character in this context.
